A new Rutgers study is giving hope to older men concerned about the effects of cholesterol-lowering medications on their sexual health.
The research, conducted at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, found that statin medication prescribed to lower cholesterol and decrease the chance of heart attack and stroke, also improves a man’s erectile function. The researchers reported their findings at the American College of Cardiology’s annual scientific session in Washington DC March 29 and in the April issue of The Journal of Sexual Medicine.
